Event description

Description

Prerequisites

Participants should have a working knowledge of climbing equipment and essential climbing knots.

Clinic Description

Join Eric Barnard, PCIA Guide and owner of Big River Climbing Guides, for a hands on introduction to climbing anchors. In this clinic, you will learn the fundamentals of building simple climbing anchors using natural features like trees and bolts. The principles discussed are data driven and grounded in the latest research. This is an opportunity for those new to climbing anchors to start learning and for those with experience to learn about the most current best practices.

Equipment

Climbing Equipment is not included in the clinic with the exception of technical ice tools. Clinic participants should make arrangements to have a climbing harness, climbing helmet, mountaineering boots compatible with crampons, and crampons. Ice climbing equipment rental packages are available on site for $10 for use during the clinic. Additional information about climbing equipment rental is included in the Confirmation Email participants receive upon registration. In addition, participants need to come prepared with clothing, food, and beverages for a full day outside in the cold. A recommended gear list is provided in the Confirmation Email.

A note on clinic costs

Money raised from fees for Ice Climbing Clinics at the Sandstone Ice Fest go directly to supporting the work of the Minnesota Climbers Association (MCA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit that works to support the sport of outdoor climbing in Minnesota. Through donations, fundraisers, the support of the City of Sandstone and the time and dedication of volunteers, the MCA is able to maintain the ice farming operation at the Sandstone Ice Park every winter. For more information about all the work of the MCA, check out mnclimbers.org. Thanks for your support.
